How to text with fake nails.

So I just got my nails done friday and i can't do anything with them! They're short, about 1/4 inch but i'm not used to having nails because i bite mine. I can type on the laptop but I'm having trouble using the touch screens on my ipod and on my phone. My phone has a regular keyboard(not touch screen) and I can barely do that either. Any moms have tips on doing daily activities with fake nails?

  • Next to impossible with a touch screen phone! Other than just takes some getting used to. I always get mine pretty short (I can't have them anymore because I work in health care), when I would get them long it just looked weird cause of my already long fingers. Getting them shorter looks clean, gives you the thickness you want and isn't as immobilizing lol. Good luck!

  • I do not have fake nails, but I do a nice, manicured real nails, and I just use the side of my finger and touch the #s with a rolling motion.
